What is Appendix Operation ?

What is Appendicitis?

Appendix is a small, finger shaped, 3-1/2 inch long organ located in the first part of the large intestine, also known as colon. It is a vestigial organ, which means, it has no known function in the body and there are no apparent consequences when it is removed.

Appendicitis is a very common medical condition in which this small organ, appendix, gets infected and inflamed. If left untreated, the inflamed appendix can burst or perforate and spill infectious matter in the abdominal cavity which can be fatal. Bacteria proliferate after the appendix swells, resulting in a large amount of pus. Bacteria and pus build-up near the belly button can cause severe pain that spreads to the lower abdomen. Coughing and walking can aggravate the situation. Diarrhea, vomiting, and nausea are all possible side effects.

It is difficult to say what causes appendicitis, it can occur when it becomes blocked by stool or by a foreign body or because of cancer. It can also get inflamed because of infection because it is known to swell when there is infection in the body.

Appendicitis is very difficult to diagnose particularly in old age people and children. The person suffering from appendicitis may experience pain surrounding the belly button which is minimal at first but gradually becomes severe and sharp and most often the pain is radiated to the right side of lower abdomen and becomes localized. Other common symptoms are fever, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation and decreased appetite.

The only way to treat appendicitis is to remove the infected appendix as soon as diagnosed to prevent the rupture of the appendix inside the abdomen.

Appendix Operation

Appendectomy refers to removal of the appendix, which is the standard medical treatment to treat appendicitis. The surgery should be done at the earliest upon diagnosis to prevent the rupture of the appendix. Appendectomy can be done using either of the two surgical interventions mentioned below.

  • Laparotomy or open appendectomyIn this the appendix is removed by making a single and large incision on the right side of the lower abdomen. The reason for opting the open surgery are;
    • If extensive infection is present
    • If the patient is obese
    • Any history of other abdominal surgery
    • Perforating appendix
    • Bleeding problems
  • Laparoscopic appendectomy
    This is the most preferred surgical procedure as it is minimally invasive and offers quicker recovery, less scarring and shorter hospital stay as compared to standard approach. In this the appendix is accessed and removed using specialized surgical instruments through several small incisions thus minimizing the risk of infection and scarring with better recovery.

When is Appendix Operation required ?

If you are diagnosed with the infection or inflammation of the appendix or if you have the symptoms of appendicitis then it is important for you to undergo surgery at the earliest.

How is Appendix Operation done?

Step 1

At first all the aseptic precautions are taken following which the surgeon makes a few small incisions of about 0.5-1 cm in the skin of your lower right part of the abdomen to let the surgical instruments reach the abdominal cavity.

Step 2

Then a tube is inserted which blows a mild stream of Carbon Dioxide which aids in separation of the abdominal wall from the underlying organs. Also, the small camera which is attached to the laparoscope is put inside through one of the incisions for the surgeon to see the images on the monitor.

Step 3

Then using trocars and cannulas which are the specialized surgical instruments, the appendix is held and clamped from its base and removed. After removing the instruments the incisions are closed and dressed.

What is the Recovery after Appendix Operation like?

Recovery is faster with laparoscopic appendectomy as compared with the open surgery. You would be discharged after 1-2 days of the operation. You would need to stay for about a week in India after the surgery to make sure you are on the right healing path before you go back. You can resume your normal activities within 2 weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

You’ll notice a pain that begins in the belly button area and gradually moves to the bottom right side of your stomach. This is the most common symptom of appendicitis. Lack of appetite, nausea, and vomiting are other signs that you may have appendicitis.

The majority of people have pain in the centre of their abdomen, near the belly button, which subsequently goes to the lower right, where the appendix is placed. Some people have also stated that they believe the discomfort in various regions, such as near to the groin, rear passage, and so on.

The pain is varying in nature. It will most likely come and go at first. However, at some point, the seriousness will most likely begin to rise and become constant. Other symptoms such as nausea and vomiting may also appear.

Yes, it is possible to have back pain while suffering from appendicitis. Because the appendix is located at the end of the colon, you may also have pelvic or lower back pain. The same has been reported by a large number of patients.

No research studies have been able to establish a link between appendicitis and anxiety. However, according to a study published in the Journal of Psychosomatic Research, melancholy and anxiety play a role in the development of GI symptoms.

The length of time it takes for you to recover depends on the type of anesthesia and procedure you had. Whether or not there are complications, such as a ruptured appendix, the recuperation time will be longer than expected.

After the stipulated period has passed, you will be able to continue your daily chores, but a total recovery will take a few weeks.

Your doctor will provide you with all of the information you need to follow during the healing period. Make sure that you have informed him or her about all of the prescription medicines you’ve been taking. Also, make a note of any allergies or medical issues you may have. Also, consult your doctor before taking any medication on your own.
